50 Years of Heavy Metal - Song of the Year list
updated 6 days ago
So, to sum this up fast, Mental Hamster (Metal Hammer) has made a list to celebrate 50 years since the birth of this terrific genre. Now, in general and as expected, Glam Trendy Hamster released a pitiful list full of the worst crap, essentially stuff that gives this genre a bad name so I intend to make my own version of their list, with a better selection of songs. The list Mental Hamster made, if you had given it to me as a teen to get acquainted with metal, I would have thought this metal shtick is a joke, not worthy of being paid attention to. To paraphrase a cretinous song from one of the worst bands on earth, "Mental Hamster, you give metal a bad name!". Fuck off now! Sorry, got confused a little.
I will also ignore their stupid rule of choosing just one song per band as that would restrict my choices, diminish the quality and it would leave certain gems in obscurity. And we don't want that, right? Some of the songs aren't really metal per see, even hard rock is a stretch, but they are highly influential. No use being a nitpicker. Off we go!
